Marko Zaror Aguad (Santiago, Chile) is a Chilean martial arts action star and fight choreographer, currently residing in Los Angeles, California, and Santiago, Chile. His career began as a young boy with a passion for martial arts and fighting, inspired by Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jean Claude Van Damme. At the age of six he started training himself, and by the age of 18 Marko had become an exceptional kick-boxer and Tae Kwan Do scholar.
Marko moved to Mexico and quickly found success in modeling by doing fashion shows and print work for major brands. Despite this success, he never lost his passion for martial arts. In Zaror's early career, he starred in Spanish language action films including Hard as Nails and Into the Flames. He landed his big break in 2003 where he acted as stuntman and martial arts double for Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, in the film The Rundown. Zaror then gained international notoriety as lead in indie action favorites Kitro, Mirageman, and Mandrill.
In 2010, he acted as a Colombian prisoner/fighter in the film Undisputed 3. Most recently, Zaror was cast to play Zaror, in Robert Rodriguez's sequel, Machete Kills. Rodriguez commented "I've been a big fan of Marko's for years, and I even created this role specifically for him. He is an incredible martial artist with physics defying speed and agility, and he has a great movie star presence. I'm sure we'll be working together again soon."
Zaror is now working on the highly anticipated Violent Rider, with writer / director Ernesto Diaz Espinoza and entrepreneur / manager Derek Rundell at RONNOC Entertainment.
